Lindsay Lohan

Lawyerless and Screwed

EXCLUSIVE

0114_lindsay_lohan_gettyLindsay Lohan should kiss Shawn Holley's butt ... because Shawn just saved hers by claiming to rep her even though Lindsay unceremoniously fired Shawn.

As we told you ... Lindsay signed a termination letter Monday which her new lawyer Mark Heller sent to Shawn. But Heller -- a New York lawyer -- is not licensed to practice in California and did not appear in court today for Lindsay's arraignment. If Shawn told the judge she was fired and formally asked to be relieved, the judge could have and probably would have issued a bench warrant for Lindsay's arrest.

Shawn dodged the issue in open court by saying she still reps LiLo for now, which is technically true until she is formally dismissed by the judge. A confused judge then clearly called Shawn and the prosecutor up to the bench and asked WTF.

Here's where it gets totally ridiculous. Sources tell us Lindsay told Shawn yesterday that she was going to have Heller send Shawn another letter cancelling the first, but we're told that never happened. And sources connected with Heller tell TMZ ... Mr. Heller was busy Monday placing calls to Shawn, the prosecutor and the court to make it clear he's the lawyer.

Since it's not clear who is representing Lindsay anymore, the judge ordered her to personally appear on January 30, even though ordinarily the matter could be handled without her being present.

In the meantime ... if Lindsay asked Shawn to come back (and this would be the second time because Lindsay pulled this stunt on her before), Holley should run for the hills.

Megan Fox compares Marilyn to LiLo (not in a good way)

Motherhood has really changed Megan Fox.

After she and husband Brian Austin Green welcomed their son Noah in September, the “This is 40” actress has not only turned over the bad-girl persona — she is also getting rid of some old ink.

In her bizarre new profile with Esquire about speaking in tongues and the supernatural (more on that later), the tatted-up “Transformers” star tells the magazine she wanted to be like Marilyn Monroe and even has a tattoo of the late actress on her arm, but has now begun the process of having it removed.

"I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It's like when you visualize something for your future. I didn't want to visualize something so negative," she said.



She then goes on to compare Lindsay Lohan to Monroe.

"She wasn't powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn't reliable, who almost wasn't insurable...She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered. I'm not interested in following those footsteps."

Fox told the men’s magazine she now admires Ava Gardner who "was a broad" who spoke her mind and "had power."

Besides admiring Gardner, she also admitted to believing in leprechauns, Big Foot and aliens.

"Would you not be so much more interested in finding out that Big Foot existed than in watching a really good movie? I believe in aliens...Loch Ness monster—there's something to it...There's the Bell Witch...What distracts me from my reality is Big Foot. They are my celebrities."

The Esquire profile includes other strange revelations, like when the star admitted to speaking in tongues, something she picked up at 8-years-old while attended a Pentecostal church in Tennessee.

"The energy is so intense in the room that you feel like anything can happen," she said. "I have seen magical, crazy things happen. I've seen people be healed. Even now, in the church I go to, during Praise and Worship, I could feel that I was maybe getting ready to speak in tongues, and I'd have to shut it off because I don't know what that church would do if I started screaming out in tongues in the back."

Shawn Holley has certainly come through this whole Lindsay thing looking very good. I'd love to hire her if I were in legal trouble. Nobody could have done a better job for Lindsay than her.

These posts are a joke. Of course people don't wan't Holly to represent Lindsay everyone want's her to go to jail. But the fact of the matter is Holly is a very good lawyer (in case you can't tell she's been doing a fine job keeping Lindsay out of jail) and she want money. Holly isn't going anywhere and these posts that suggest she is or should are crazy. Yeah Holly, Leave the best job you ever had, lol!

Shawn listen up even the Titanic offered an out to women and children first, take the career lifeboat while you still have a chance, you are no longer doing her any favors by keeping her afloat, let her sink and then maybe she will finally learn!

Does Lindsay Lohan have any fans? I can't imagine how anyone could stand her. As long as Lindsay is on that Aderall she will remain a stone cold biaatch.

If only Lindsay's lawyer dilemma could only be figured out by going on the Maury show: You are NOT the lawyer! Lol

Funny how Ali hasn't tweeted anything from Korea.


Thats cause she is in London, with her hooker sister making money for Mummy. The bills are stacking up for the Broke ass Lohans.


Dina doesn't care if Ali is a "Hotel Hooker" with Lindsay. As long as her gurls are making the money

LIndsay, you are plain stupid to fire this lawyer....she puts up with your sh*t and gets you off of stuff you shouldn't get off on. You are being an airhead, now get real and stop the BS.

PS. if you would quit partying and being wild, you would have more money in your pocket. You aren't that young, so wise up!
